Welcome to AskUbuntu. It is not really clear to me what you did, what you expected to happen and what gone wrong. Could you describe in more detail what your exact problem is? Thanks –  qbi Jan 11 '13 at 22:14
In some cases it helped to install gstreamer0.1-plugins-bad. Could you try this? –  qbi Jan 11 '13 at 22:48
